I started about 6 weeks ago, and am using my fitness pal. I go to the gym 4 times a week, and do a mixture of cardio, weight training and fitness classes, usually for about 45 minutes.
For breakfast I'm having canned fish or boiled eggs, with chopped up cucumber and sweet corn.
For lunch I have salad with spinach, cucumber, red onions, chicken, egg on non-egg breakfast days, and cubed emmental.
For dinner I have chicken/fish/turkey with vegetables.
I snack on cherry tomatoes, carrots and babybel.
I like savoury breakfasts and don't have an oven.
I feel like I'm retaining water, I've lost 5kg in 5 weeks and am definitely not trying to rush weight loss.
What other high lean protein and low fat items could I have for breakfast? Advice on my other meals? What else could I snack on? I have no sweet tooth thankfully. I've read many many of the related questions in the archives.
